Fox Panelist Thinks Romney’s Still Going To Run: ‘It’s A Chess Move’ (VIDEO)

January 30, 2015 12:49 p.m.

Fox News panelist Stacey Dash knows something the rest of the political world doesn’t: Mitt Romney’s Friday announcement to supporters that he would not launch a third Republican presidential bid is actually a clever front.

“I think the fact that he is a numbers guy, makes me believe that this is a chess move,” Dash said from her perch on the “Outnumbered” couch. “I don’t believe he’s not going to run.”

The rest of the panelists reacted to that observation with a one-word chorus of “Really?” and “Wow.”

“I think he is the man for the country,” Dash said. “I think he is the man to lead –“

“Even though he just said he’s not gonna run?” Andrea Tantaros cut in.

“Like I said, he’s a numbers guy, and I think it’s a chess move,” Dash repeated.

“But a numbers guy would have to start raising money right now,” Tantaros protested.

“He knows how to raise money. He’s proven that,” Dash laughed. “He knows all about money.”

Dash was met with a lot of backlash when she endorsed Romney for the 2012 presidential race in a tweet that pictured her in a red bathing suit.
